A device shows one icon



Dear support,

I would like to know one way to configure the device shows only one icon, like green, red or yellow. But, I need this device icon to be red when any sensor is red.

For example, I have one Firewall device, and inside this device I have 3 sensors: Port, Ping and SNMP Traffic. I create a map with this device icon, only one icon about all sensors inside this firewall device. This icon is red, I look and only the Port sensor is red. The SNMP Traffic and ping sensor are ok. Is there a way to do this?

this can only be done in a Map with an according map icon (Status Icon) not in the normal device tree.

best regards.
